Louis Berger awarded contract for Versova-Bandra Sea Link


The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has appointed US-based Louis Berger as project consultants for the Versova-Bandra Sea Link project.

The Versova-Bandra Sea Link project is part of the larger coastal road plan undertaken by MSRDC to reduce congestion in western Mumbai. As part of the Rs. 109 crore contract, Louis Berger will carry out a feasibility study of the 17.17 km stretch. The company will also prepare tenders, review designs and provide construction management services during construction phase.

The northbound extension of the existing Bandra-Worli Sea Link will be an 8-lane highway that will connect the suburbs of Versova and Bandra. This stretch will include a cable-stayed bridge section and a balanced cantilever section. Two interchanges connecting areas of Juhu and Koliwada are also planned.

The project is estimated to cost Rs. 6,000 crore and will be constructed over 54 months. It is likely to be completed by the end 2021.
